Creative, insightful, and energetic, I’m always up for an adventure or a challenge. One of 6 kids I was forced to think on my feet more than a time or two, whether it was mending mom’s broken vase or helping a sibling pull off a science project with less than a few hours notice. When most people find these situations taxing and stressful, I’ve been conditioned for them, conditioned to embrace and utilize the functional applications of these seemingly negative situations to induce creative solutions.
“Creativity always comes as a surprise to us; therefore we can never count on it and we dare not believe in it until it has happened. In other words, we would not consciously engage upon tasks whose success clearly requires that creativity be forthcoming.” -Albert O. Hirschman
Having a diverse education and work experience, I thrive under pressure and take pride in finding and implementing out-of-the-box solutions. The ideal job for me takes place both inside and outside of the office. I enjoy a balanced mix of interacting with team members, vendors, and clients constantly working toward more efficient and effective workplace, products, and services. Having worked retail in my youth and in business to business sales, consulting and marketing as an adult, I would love the opportunity to work in an environment that merged these skills.
I am a firm believer in a balanced work and personal life and that your success should not be measured by your salary. The lessons we learn on the journeys we take help us prepare for the many unknowns life throws our way. I am an avid traveler, fisher-woman, junk refurbishing enthusiast and design devotee. I am constantly trying new things and pushing my abilities both mentally and physically. Every day is an adventure!
